The SUNY Trustees' decision to extend the life of the UFT Charter School by two more years has prompted a variety of responses. Critics from within the charter movement and from afar suggested that the school should have been closed.
NECSN’s Bill Phillips has a different view, and supports the ultimate result -- automatic closure for the school should it fail to improve quickly. Check out his Op-Ed in the Daily News for more on this.
In a twist, the co-lo policy vehemently opposed by UFT for other charters was used to extend the life of its own struggling school. This New York Post editorial is also worth a look.
